My God, The Object Of My Adoration, The Goal Of
My God, the Object of my adoration, the Goal of my desire, the
All-Bountiful, the Most Compassionate! All life is of Thee and all power
lieth within the grasp of Thine omnipotence. Whosoever Thou exaltest is
raised above the angels, and attaineth the station: Verily, We uplifted
him to a place on high!; and whosoever Thou dost abase is made lower than
dust, nay, less than nothing.
O Divine Providence! Though wicked, sinful, and intemperate, we still seek
from Thee a seat of truth, and long to behold the countenance of the
Omnipotent King. It is Thine to command, and all sovereignty belongeth to
Thee, and the realm of might boweth before Thy behest. Everything Thou
doest is pure justice, nay, the very essence of grace. One gleam from the
splendors of Thy Name, the All-Merciful, sufficeth to banish and blot out
every trace of sinfulness from the world, and a single breath from the
breezes of the Day of Thy Revelation is enough to adorn all mankind with a
Vouchsafe Thy strength, O Almighty One, unto Thy weak creatures, and
quicken them who are as dead, that haply they may find Thee, and may be
led unto the ocean of Thy guidance, and may remain steadfast in Thy Cause.
Should the fragrance of Thy praise be shed abroad by any of the divers
tongues of the world, out of the East or out of the West, it would,
verily, be prized and greatly cherished. If such tongues, however, be
deprived of that fragrance, they assuredly would be unworthy of any
mention, be they words or thoughts.
We beg of Thee, O Providence, to show Thy way unto all men, and to guide
them aright. Thou art, verily, the Almighty, the Most Powerful, the
All-Knowing, the All-Seeing.
